It was all based on how I felt. For those reasons I would recommend LCI to others. LCI’s strengths were communication, preparation, expectation setting for both the recruiter and recruitee.

Lauren provided an involved experience and ensured I was prepared for every step-up of the process up to hiring. Then as the year progressed, she continued to check to ensure the position was an actual fit. Overall, an extremely positive experience. LCI used a process I wish more employers utilized. Whether Lauren was preparing me for interviews, explaining what to expect in such a position, or providing information on the local activities, it truly felt like I was her only client. My position is unique and different from what I expected. Each day is different, which can make time fly. Without a doubt I would use LCI again. Lauren made the process too easy, and I hope to utilize her services in the future. I would recommend LCI to others, because Lauren knows something about everything. If I knew of anyone needing assistance with any part of the employment process, I would direct them to Lauren. Their strengths are the interpersonal communication, experience, and knowledge on many topics, understanding the apprehension and uncertainty of new hires.

Working with LCI was a great experience. When faced with the challenge of looking for a new company to work for after moving for family reasons, the first call I made was to Lauren. LCI was thorough in their search and I felt that we arrived at the best position to ensure a good cultural fit and continue an engineering career with a great wastewater engineering consultant. The process was thorough. LCI investigated all the engineering firms in the area, reviewing various sites such as LinkedIn and Indeed, as well as using their deep network of contacts in the wastewater industry. Throughout this process, I was reassured that the company we finally decided upon would be the ideal fit. Due to the thoroughness of the search, the company and career I am currently working in is an ideal fit for me. As expected, the role meets the challenges and opportunities I was expecting, the company maintains a culture dedicated to the employees, and my boss has technical expertise and communication skills to maintain a positive and productive line of communication. Lauren was the first call I made when faced with the challenge of moving to a location where my previous employer did not have an office. LCI connected me with my previous employer as well, which was a great company to work for and I had no intention of leaving until faced with moving for family reasons. I have already recommended LCI to numerous colleagues and peers. The main reason is the thoroughness of the search and the deep network of contacts in the wastewater engineering consultant world. Additionally, Lauren is very affable and a pleasure to work with. Strengths include thoroughness of the job search, which includes a thorough analysis of the opportunities in the area. LCI has contacts at nearly all the local, regional, and national engineering firms, which makes getting your foot in the door much easier. Additionally, Lauren has a depth of knowledge for every consulting firm in the world that makes it easy to discuss and narrow down the opportunities and ideal fits within the industry.
Lauren was pleasant and very professional. The process was very thorough. It is clear that lots of experience has gone into planning out their process.I had a successful landing on the first go around and I would use them again. I highly recommend Lincoln & Creed. They are well seasoned at working diligently for both sides during the process.

The process revolves around providing the interviewee the tools necessary to excel in the interview process and transition into a new work environment. LCI took my resume and interests and directly linked my skills with the most applicable and exciting job opportunity. I would use LCI again because of the quality of the communication with the recruiter and the high caliber of employers that rely on LCI. I would recommend LCI to others because you can count on finding great job opportunities and being fully prepared for every step of the process. The strength of LCI is in the subject matter experts of the field in which they are recruiting. It was wonderful working with you!
Charlie found my dream job and revved up my personal presentation to turn the interview into an offer, even though I’m 63 years old. Charlie provided support and constructive criticism that made all the difference. She even guided me on how to accept the offer, write my resignation letter, and ensure an amicable separation from my company. I owe Charlie big time.

I found it easy to work with LCI. They followed up when they said they would and were always responsive. I also found that their industry knowledge was critically important to finding the right fit for my next job. Their process is thoughtful. LCI took the time to figure out what was important to me in my new job and they helped me to consider companies that were not even on my radar. I ended up with a firm I’d never heard of before and I couldn’t be happier. I am having a great time with my new role in my new company. I have quickly integrated into the company culture and I have found that I’m excited to go to work every day. I would use LCI again. I thought that the process was thoughtful and that the team helped me to find a job that hit all the right notes for me. The company that I ended up with offered my ideal salary without me having to negotiate – that was priceless. I already recommended them to others! I think that LCI’s industry knowledge alone is a reason to recommend them to friends. LCI strengths are follow up and perseverance. I can’t think of anything that they could improve. –
I would like to tip my hat to you and your team as well. I have been getting inundated with contact requests from LinkedIn in the last week. I have talked to a couple other folks in your field and to say that your team dominates in terms of knowledge and polish is an understatement. I was initially impressed because you exceeded my expectations in terms of what I would expect from a recruiter. Now I’m even more impressed because the other folks I have talked to can hardly put a sentence together when they get off the script they are reading. It was to the point where I really wanted to know the name of the company they were recruiting for because if they would hire a worthless recruiter then they probably aren’t a worthwhile company to work for as an employee. So keep up the good work!
I absolutely loved working with LCI. I would describe the process as thorough and prompt. LCI strengths would be how approachable, encouraging and helpful they are at all times, especially with the interview prep sessions. Thank you guys so much for assisting me, and for helping me land such an amazing job.
